Back to You…The WordPress Family Award

Crazy roller-coaster time in my life.  Help!  I want to get off and stand firm on the ground because I’ve got to get back to you and share some fabulous news!

Got to say thank you ever so much Sheila for nominating me for The WordPress Family Award. When you welcomed me into your ‘cyber’ family you really made my day and gave me huge cause to smile! Boy, do I need some good news and this did the trick!  I am so honoured to be welcomed into your WordPress family!

You never fail to encourage me and bless me with all your likes and comments and visits.  I always smile when I see you here.  You’re a star!

The WordPress Family Award

The WordPress Family Award

Once again, I urge you to visit Sheila’s inspirational blog ‘Alzheimer’s Trail‘ where she shares her journey as a full-time carer of her mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s  through beautifully written poems and prose.  I love Sheila’s writing and I know you will too!

Now, just so you know  what The WordPress Family Award is all about, here is a word from Shaun, the creator of this award:

‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award.’  Thank you Shaun @

NOW THE FUN  (and the work) starts, the rules are as follows:

1. Display the award logo on your blog  (see above).
2. Link back to the person who nominated you (also see above!)
3. Nominate 10 others who have positively impacted your WordPress experience.
4. Don’t forget to let your WordPress family members know of your nomination.
5. That’s it!  Just pick 10 people that have accepted you as a friend, and spread the love!

This is the exciting part!  Now I get to nominate all you lovely blogging friends of mine, some who have been with me from the very start and some more recently.  I appreciate each and every one of you, all your visits to and support of my blog, so very much.  I couldn’t have done it without you 🙂

Welcome to my WordPress Family!













Sorry, I broke the rules again, I nominated 12 not 10, but couldn’t help myself.   Wish I could have done more but running out of time and going now to spread the love and the smiles.. wishing you all a super day 🙂 x

  9. Jennifer Butler Basile says:

    Congratulations to you, Sherri! I have not forgotten your bestowing this great honor on me! Am working on it – though long overdue! Guess I’ve been pulling too many ‘weeds’! or not enough!


    • Sherri says:

      Hi Jennifer, lovely to ‘see’ you again 🙂 No problem, take your time, I fully understand…as I said, just wanted you to know that you are part of my little cyber family.


      • Jennifer Butler Basile says:

        It is done! It’s official! And it wouldn’t be official family – even if cyber – if I didn’t procrastinate for this long to complete something a family member asked of me! 😉

        Thank you so much for the honor and for sharing your words with us all!


        • Sherri says:

          Yay!! I feel very honoured to be a part of your official family, procrastination and all 😉
          Congratulations once again, even though you’ve been family with or without your acceptance post. If it makes you feel any better, I was always the one in the family who was known for saying that I would do something ‘in a minute’. I’ve never lived it down, as my minutes were often more like hours…
          well, you know what ‘they’ say…better late than never!
          Thank you Jennifer 🙂
